    Have any of you had pain after an epi in labour?

    I had one 4 weeks ago now, and when I bend over sometimes and sit down, its sore where the epidural was. Will it go away? It's not unbearable, but its not fun either :cry:

    I never had back problems before my (botched) epidural and now I find it hard bending. It goes from a dull ache to almost like cramp at exactly the place they tried (and failed) to get it in. Asked the doc and she said it was probably from bending to pick up the baby so often! :roll:

    I'm back at the docs on Thursday to try and sort out this stupid pill so will let you know what happens! :hug:

    Yes, still get pain 8 months on. Mostly when I'm sitting for too long. May not be the epidural - they tried 17 (!) goes to get the spinal in for my section.....

    I am feeling some pain as well. It isn't extreme pain but still sore. It is like you, when bending over or sitting.
